Women’s Business Center Kicks off 16th year

Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP) Women’s Business Center is kicking off its 16th year as a program of the Center for Rural Affairs.

We continue to partner with local organizations to offer learning opportunities throughout the state.

Recently, “Online Marketing Strategies” sessions were held in Hebron and Central City, with sessions scheduled for Plattsmouth and Wood River in the near future.

“Facebook for Business” was offered in Central City, and “Top Ten LinkedIn Tips” was held in Lincoln in collaboration with Community Development Resources.

A key to business success is accurate and timely recordkeeping. QuickBooks sessions were held in Walthill, Scottsbluff, Norfolk, Atkinson, Kimball, Chadron, and Ainsworth. Sessions are planned for Neligh, Red Cloud, and O’Neill.

A “Business Plan Basics” course was offered in Loup City in cooperation with the Central Nebraska Economic Development District and Sherman County Economic Development.

Two “Sales/Use Taxes” sessions were held in Beatrice in September.
